A 60 second timelapse showing how the profile art for Anna Dale Academy's vicious girl gang The IC (Josie, Maxine and Ruby) was colored in Photoshop!

youtu.be/7mjMw3g1EkI A quick timelapse vid condensing my process of going from a rough draft comic book page to final pencils - a day's work in sixty seconds!

If you'd like to see more vids like this, please consider subscribing to the Corbie YouTube channel! I'm looking to get back to doing more content on there, from short-form clips like this, to longer how-tos, to livestreams.

Dusted off an old illustration of Macha that I did in Clip Studio Paint a few years ago and made a few corrections. Sadly her partner in crime Neamhain didn't appear in this set, but I still have two more characters that I'll get around to posting at some point (including one for a Corbie cast member yet to debut!)

Work in progress art from issue 4 of Corbie! Draft pencils are about halfway done now - the plan at the moment is to try and get this issue out in October to mark CMC's first anniversary.

A raging work-in-progress panel of Corbie - one angry bird! I've still got some work to do on the draft pages before I can move on to the finalized pencil art. Fortunately the remaining pages in this issue take place indoors and don't require me to lovingly render any more woodland areas or grassy fields...

First rough pencil art preview from Corbie issue 4.

youtu.be/UlvBFbBYPHI New video! A timelapse of the colouring process for my Action Master Optimus Prime art. This piece was done in GIMP instead of Photoshop - in the vid I discuss my experience in making the jump!

Art for an upcoming video on my YouTube channel about Action Master ! This is a homage to the Joustra Diaclone box art for the pre-G1 version of the original Optimus toy.

A small teaser of the full Art Nouveau / Alphonse Mucha style cover for the expanded and remastered version of Corbie issue 1. I'm gradually going through the first issue of CMC and making changes for a future release that you'll be able to own in both digital and print formats. Be sure to follow the various Corbie accounts across IG, YouTube and Twitch to watch it all take shape on the livestreams! 👩⚔🔮🌃

This was originally created for World Day, but only now did I get around to producing this giant-sized poster. A hi-res digital version has now been made available to all donors on Ko-Fi for anyone who'd like to create their own print versions at any size. Further goodies will also be made available to those who contribute, so stay tuned!

Final pencils for issue 3 of Corbie were completed on Tuesday afternoon. Scanning and cleanup of the art begins today.

Those last few pages seemed to take forever to redraw and wore me down a bit. Feeling refreshed now and ready to move on to this next stage.

Corbie is now officially on YouTube! Please enjoy this encore presentation of today's inaugural livestream, which sees me pencilling a page from the next issue and talking about all sorts of subjects related to making comics.

The deed is done.

The last page of rough pencils for Corbie issue 3 was finished late last night. Overall I'm pretty happy with the way it's shaping up. There are a few things I'd like to go back and change, but there's still plenty of scope for making tweaks before this project is done.

Work on the clean pencil art starts today!

I've been working on the rough art for Corbie issue 3 for a few weeks now, and the finish line is almost in sight. Another couple of pages remaining, then it's on to the next step in the production process.

Some of my favourite panels to draw are the ones with Corbie in action or flying around, as well as anything where characters break through the boundaries of the comic panels. Happily, these last few pages check all these boxes.

Here's another little peek at the art for next issue of Corbie. I wanted to have a super productive weekend and get a bunch of pages finished. It didn't happen. Thankfully the few pages that did get done look pretty good IMHO, so there's that...

I was feeling blue last night and struggling to push through with pencilling the next page of the comic, so I decided to switch things up and create some new chalkboard art instead.

Some days I grapple with self-doubt, but I always believe in Corbie, and that having a superhero for introverts / HSPs to identify with is a good "caws". If you'd like to help support it, you can donate to the CMC Ko-Fi at ko-fi.com/corbie

Highlights from today's Corbie pencilling sessions. Rough art is always subject to change, especially when I drop the ball like I did with the second image. Corinne had removed her helmet during this scene and I accidentally drew her with it on, so now I need to partially redraw it.

Welcome to the wonderful world of sequential art, where you get to manage not just props and wardrobe, but continuity too 😅

Found this pen doodle of Corinne from... I'm gonna say about 2012... while rummaging around in my desk drawer.

Not super different to how she looks today. The most notable change is that she used to have braided strands of hair above her temples that met up around the back of her head. That element didn't last long as her design was cleaned up / simplified for comics.
